HOORAY IT'S SATURDAY
Yes I am always happy for my days off from work when I can be ME. I slept in a little bit today and woke up feeling pretty good. I had a large list of things to do, but didn't get much done. But I'll show you what I did do today.
I am still feeding the strays that are living in the yard behind me. It's Momma, Baby and Shy. I call them that because it is a momma cat and her two babies. One is very skittish and runs. The other kitten climbs up the steps to my back door and cries for me to feed him/her. The momma now sits in the yard and hisses at me but doesn't run. I don't try to pet them or pick them up. I just talk to them while I put out the food and then leave. I am hoping they get used to me enough that I can find them homes or shelter before the cold weather comes. Here's the babies eating this morning.
After I had breakfast I went to the pharmacy for Joe and then headed for the farm. I want to eat more veggies and fruit and I know I'll do it if I have fresh from the farm. And everything is so good this time of year.
I went late and didn't expect so much good stuff to still be there. Here's what I got today.
I got a sugar cube melon. I don't know what it is, but it sure smells good. Joe and I are adventurous in our veggie eating. I also got three varicolored bell peppers which I will cut up and freeze for use in recipes later. I got three Yukon gold potatoes, two ears of corn, two Jersey tomatoes and a baguette.
I even got a nap in this afternoon. It felt so good to just be able to sleep when I got overly tired. At work I just have to push on through.
For dinner tonight I made baked salmon, roasted Brussels sprouts, sliced tomatoes and a couple of slices of the baguette. It was wonderful. Joe made the iced tea and even did the dishes after dinner. What a guy! I think I'll keep him.
Now I have a load of laundry in which I will hang on the line before I go to bed. Sunday morning comes quickly. Church just isn't the same without Pastor Justin, but we are continuing on because the church is about Christ, not the pastor.
Oh, by the way, I tried to answer everyone's comments from my last post. I hope you will go back and read them.
Good night, everyone. See you all tomorrow.
